Real Wedding: Elizabeth + Joe at Merrimon Wynne Carriage House

Oh how I adore this couple!  Joe is a church friend of mine, who's girl I quickly fell in love with when we first met to plan their wedding.  Elizabeth is quite the completion for Joe - and their love for one another and others is so precious.  This couple is one that I'd say will grow the sweetest family and will have the most fun and adventures together. I was so honored that they chose me to be a part of their day!

From the beginning, they said they wanted a celebration of "their people" and a celebration of their love to ring in the New Year....and oh what a party it was!  Their ceremony was intimate and full of meaning - held in the Merrimon Wynne Carriage House.  Guests made their way into the cocktail hour adorned in their New Year's eve best, and then enjoyed a station style dinner from Beau's Catering back in the Carriage House.  DJ Randy Bennett played the most perfect New Year's tunes and there was quite the crowd on the dance floor!  Dessert was from the lovely Hayes Barton Cafe (amazing!). Bushel and Peck designs put together Joe's wedding design vision and brought holiday colors and a little glamour to the decor.

What a perfect New Year's celebration!  Congrats DeKonty's!


Thanks to all our awesome vendors!
